Update on baby yet

Last night I started having contractions 10 minutes apart for over 3 hours. I called the midwife on call and she said to go take a warm bath to see if they would stop...well I didn't want to do that (get wet! have to get out of a bath! or stop labor! LOL!) So instead I called everybody and put them on notice and made sure all bags were ready to go, got everyone in bed, including hubs and me, had contractions in bed for the next hour and fell asleep. I didn't sleep well at all, my joints are achy, but my contratcions subsided! UGH! I don't mind waiting the 2 more weeks I have left, but I do mind having "false" labor. (I'm not a big believer in false labor...though I'm sure random braxton hicks get mistaken for labor...this was not braxton hicks...I had to seriously focus through a couple of them and knew I wasn't REALLY ready to go yet because they weren't getting consistently stronger or closer together.)

So maybe I'll be around for a nother 2-4 weeks ;)
